In a recent viral campaign, several Starbucks outlets in the U.S. and Canada have removed the word “coffee” from their menu labels, replacing it with a coffee-related emoji.
The campaign, which has since spread to other coffee shops in the United States and Canada, aims to highlight the many reasons coffee can be a lifesaver, but it comes amid a wave of negative comments about the beverage from other groups.
The word “f***” has also been used in a variety of ways by some people.
According to a study released by the National Institute of Mental Health, people use it to refer to a variety, such as “shitty”, “nasty”, “shameful”, and “sh*t”.
It’s a sentiment that Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz said he finds upsetting.
“I’m really sorry to hear that,” Schultz told The Washington Post.
“That’s just not what we stand for.
And we don’t want that to continue.
We don’t believe it’s okay to use that word.”
The company is taking a different approach.
The company has removed “f**k” from its menu labels in some of its stores.
The coffee company said in a statement to ABC News that the “f” word was removed from the coffee bar menu for several reasons.
“In order to be inclusive, our bar is called ‘F**k’ and has a ‘F’ on it,” the statement read.
“Our coffee drink is called Coffee & Caffeine.
That’s how it’s known.
In a way, it’s a bit like the n-word.”
In response to the campaign, the coffee company added: “While we know there are some who disagree with the decision to remove the word, we’re proud of the way we’ve handled it and are working hard to build a more inclusive Starbucks environment.”
“While we don.t condone any language that would make us feel uncomfortable, we stand by our coffee and are committed to making sure we don.”
It was the first time the word was used in Starbucks menus in nearly two years, and it comes after a slew of other Starbucks outlets across the country have removed their menu items from the company’s website, as well as their Twitter accounts.
The hashtag #NoMoreFucks is trending on Twitter, where users have posted comments like “I dont want to see a Starbucks that’s not inclusive of other cultures, but if I have to use a slur, it wont be the first,” and “I want to leave my house and go to a coffee shop and stop using f**king terms like f*ck and c**t,” among other comments.
While Starbucks has said it will remove the “n-word” from the menu for some customers, it has also recently begun to remove it from its website.
The removal of the word is not the first of its kind.
The coffee company removed the “N” from it’s coffee cups after several other Starbucks stores in the US and Canada began to follow suit.
In response, some users of the social media platform have taken to Twitter to voice their disapproval of Starbucks.
In a statement on the Starbucks website, a Starbucks spokesperson said: “In light of recent media coverage of our coffee culture, we are removing the ‘n-words’ from our menu, and we are committed a zero-tolerance approach to discrimination.
Our commitment to inclusion goes beyond coffee, and our customers are just as important to us as we are to them.
We have a zero tolerance policy for discrimination, harassment, or discrimination based on age, race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, national origin, religion, and other protected classes.””
We appreciate our customers taking the time to share their thoughts on this issue.
We want to share that Starbucks is proud to be a community that is accepting and respectful of all people.
And, we also want to remind our customers that our coffee is 100% made with real beans.”
